The Compliance Promotion System

In the belief that failure to ensure compliance is incompatible with business survival in a competitive and highly internationalized world, we have put in place a compliance promotion system designed to mark us out as a company deserving of public trust.

In September 2003, TAKAHATA set up a Compliance Committee* which included external specialists among its members. The Committee currently acts also as Global CSR Committee and appoints a leader at each of our affiliates around the world to carry out regular compliance training.

We have also introduced a helpline system through which compliance-related infringements in the workplace and related issues can be brought directly to the attention of management via e-mail. In this way, we are raising the reliability of our corporate activities.

* Changed the name to the Global CSR Committee from January 2011

CSR Activities

Promoting Diversity and Inclusion

At TAKAHATA, we believe it is important to create a corporate culture where a diverse mix of employees can maximize their individual abilities regardless of race, nationality, disabilities, sex or age, so that we will
be able to fulfill our corporate philosophy, which is built around our human assets.

TAKAHATA is an international organization that actively employs people in our businesses throughout the world. By appointing qualified local staff to management positions, we are able to attentively address regional needs.

A Work-friendly Environment

TAKAHATA provides employees with a variety of educational opportunities in accordance with their job category, rank, and objectives, thus giving them a sense of work satisfaction and boosting their desire for self-improvement. Moreover, we determine abilities and achievements by implementing selfevaluations as well as company evaluations, and have created a global framework that fairly reflects individual talents.
At the same time, we also encourage an appropriate work-life balance, improve safety in the workplace, and overall health of the employee for our employees to enthusiastically carry out their duties. We work toward building a comfortable environment where everyone can work for years to come.

Basic Stance Toward Social Contribution

We cannot survive as a company unless we are trusted by society.
With this in mind, the TAKAHATA Corporate Ethics Policy stipulates that we "engage in philanthropic and other social activities that will benefit society together with local communities." As a good corporate citizen, we have carried out programs around the world in response to local community expectations and requests.

Social Contribution Activities in Thailand

TPTH, our business affiliate in Thailand, has included social contribution programs in its company policy since 2008, and has undertaken a range of activities in which employees can participate voluntarily. For example, employees participate in tree-planting activities, visit local elementary schools and utilize their individual skills to repair and maintain school property, including fixing water systems, electrical lines, and replacing roof tiles.
In 2011, TPTH was awarded the CSR DIW 2011 Award by the Thai Ministry of Industry in recognition of its CSR activities. The CSR DIW Award is given in recognition of activities in the following seven categories; Legal and regulatory compliance systems, Respect for human rights, Consideration for employees, Consideration for the environment, Consideration for suppliers, Consideration for customers, and Cohesion with the local community. TPTH will continue to actively undertake CSR activities.

Social Contribution Activities in U.S.

TPTN, our business affiliate in the U.S., has been actively participating in social contribution activities that are focused on supporting the youth in the local community. For example, TPTN invites children’s club to tour its factory and participates as a judge for science fairs at local schools. TPTN also contributes to the local community through holding job fairs and cleaning roads around its factory.
As a contribution to the local community, TPTN assists a NPO that supports children from abusive homes. As unemployment can lead to child abuse, TPTN holds job fairs to offer employment opportunities for the local population.
TPTN will continue to implement activities focused on the local community.
